Day 9 and counting!!! LOL : )
It is surprising how much “simple” border I can get done while watching the news, etc. in the evening!!! LOL (When I don’t have to think much on sections of the design.) You can see in the lower right corner that I will need to take out the gold in the circle and rehook it…as part of the strip is lost in the background!
The two main colours in this border are two wonderful “as-is” wools, one a blue stripe with light and med. blues plus a bit of orange in the stripes…and the other a great dull gold “tweedy” wool! You remember I said that my first thought on this rug was to do brighter crayon colours, but I felt that even though this is a funny rug, the rich, deep colours (almost like hooking royalty and their velvet robes, etc) were what I wanted to use. So I used them!!!! LOL
I’ve lightened the picture so you can see the colours a bit better…but as you know, the real rug colours are more beautiful than a photo can show (or at least MY photos!!!) : )
Happy Hooking!!! : )
